Description

Discovery of Coppermine River by Samuel Hearne, 1771, by Frank Johnston, ca. 1922

This painting was first published, in 1922, in a calendar distributed by the HBC
Original caption: “
Samuel Hearne, with the guidance and advice of Cree and Chipewyan guides, was the first European to reach the Coppermine River and then travel by canoe to the Arctic Ocean.

As you view the calendar image, consider the following:
How does the artist’s treatment of the colour in the sky give the feeling of depth to the composition?
In what ways do the expressions, gestures, and stance of the figures express the meaning and mood of the work?
How does the accurate depiction of the subjects’ clothing help to convey the meaning of the painting?
